ServiceIdentity object

The ServiceIdentity object can be used to manage an AD RMS service account. Services, like users, are provided with accounts that can be authenticated. When you provision AD RMS on a server, you must define a service account and specify the account credentials. If the SQL server is shared by more than one AD RMS installation, the service account must be a domain account but not the same domain account that you used to install AD RMS. The service account is made a member of the RMS Service Group and is granted the permissions of that group.

You can retrieve the object by calling the ServiceIdentity property on the ConfigurationManager object. You can use the ServiceIdentity object to change the service account. Doing so replaces the account previously contained in the RMS Service Group with the new account. This object does not support remote access.
